Joining the list of car manufacturers providing aid to the victims of Taal’s wrath is Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), which recently donated a brand new Isuzu D-Max 4×4 to the Philippine Red Cross (PRC).
The donation is earmarked to support the PRC’s mission to provide life-saving services that protect the life of Filipinos in vulnerable situations. This includes its relief efforts for the victims of Taal’s eruption. Along with the brand new pick-up, Isuzu also donated additional supplies, such as bottled water, toiletries, clothes, and other essentials to alleviate the condition of evacuees and affected individuals.
IPC Executive Vice President Shojiro Sakoda said, “Isuzu D-MAX 4×4, being a utilitarian pick-up, is surely essential in bringing relief goods and aiding victims of Taal Volcano eruption.”
“Isuzu D-MAX is a combination of power and performance and is equipped with Blue Power technology that can withstand any roads, from the toughest terrain to the slickest street all in style and comfort”, he added.
As of 8 am of January 26, 2020, PHIVOLCS has lowered Taal Volcano’s Alert Level from 4 to 3, citing decreased volcanic activity based from its lower volcanic earthquakes and sulfur dioxide emissions. This does not mean that the volcano is already quiet, though. The chances of an eruption are still there, so it is best to continue remaining vigilant as the volcano is still showing strong signs of unrest.
